EUON Nanopinion Highlights Benefits of Bio-Based Nanomaterials
On July 23, 2020, the European Union (EU) Observatory for Nanomaterials (EUON) published a Nanopinion entitled “Material manufacturing from nano-scaled particles: moving forward using plants” by Dr. Blaise Tardy, Research Fellow, Bio-Based Colloids and Materials Research Group — Aalto University in Finland. Dr. Tardy notes that bio-based nanomaterials such as nanocellulose “have shown great promise in forming high performance materials, with the potential to replace plastics.” In addition to replacing hazardous synthetic materials such as single-use, disposable materials, these biomaterials could be used in car parts, 3D-printable bioinks, reflective coatings, adhesives, and high-strength filaments. According to Dr. Tardy, these bio-based nanoparticles offer the promise of large-scale nanomanufacturing using water-based systems.
